Why would anyone buy a Toyota if he can a Mazda?

I would expect the roads to have been more peaceful when everybody rode a horse. Even the bike had little to fear other than slipping on manure.
Nowadays, an SUV simply crushes you.

Yep, it's all part of the "trend" toward Globalization.
Fuck American unions in the process.

You'd have to get in line BEHIND the unions themselves to do so.

I'm all for the union of the monkeys against the lion. But they shouldn't get too fat either, or they become a lion too!

A more apt comparison would be to a hyena.

Yeah, a union of hyenas can beat a lion too, but a proper balance is necessary. Call it "balance of power" or the lion goes too hungry.

I think of it in more simple economic terms.
Pay some yokel $40 per hour, plus benefits, to bolt on a bumper.
You're financially doomed.

I know. A guy retired from Ford Union told me he used to go golfing on company time.
A formula for success. ;)

Pay now, or pay later. And I own a 2009 Ranger.

OK, they guy is retired. ;)
I love that little truck. That was designed with Mazda, right?

I don't know if Mazda was co-designed, but their truck is a re-badged Ranger.

Who's the original and who's the fake? Collaboration is good though. Escort was a PS until Mazda lent a hand. But the European Escort was even better.
A lot of politics into cars too.

I think the Ranger was first.

Witness so many good cars not allowed into the U.S. due to top-speed numbers. The RX-8 is a mere shadow of what it could have been.
My Bimmer is limited to 155, and the list goes on and on...

Big Brother is doing a great job at punishing the smart ones.
And Toyota comes under the radar. Sneaky of them, don't you think?

As far as I know, there's no statutory or regulatory limitation on top speed of a US car.

That's a gentleman's agreement between BMW and Mercedes.

There is no statutory limitation, but there is something called litigation, which is BIG in the USA - so manufacturers 'voluntarily" limit the performance of their vehicles to what they consider to be "sane" or "legally defensible" levels of performance - something more than the top 15 performance drivers in North America could be expected to handle safely.

American roads are unsafe at any speed, often because idiots (mostly in Toyotas) drive too slow.

I found this car to be truly unique, inspiring and yet a bad idea for American stupid roads...
